Peceli has been staying at the Gecko Resort, Cuvu, for the past four days as part of the kaulotu (missonary) commemoration of the Coming of the Lotu to Nadroga which has been arranged by members of the family of the late Rev Taniela Lotu. Peceli said the program went very well with drama, workshops and discussions, photograph displays, talks, worship and great hospitality. Peceli's main contribution was a talk with powerpoint pictures entitled 'Carryimg the Lotu'. Today Peceli plans to go up the Sigatoka Valley to revisit Naikoro village, the place where he worked as a talatala (Methodist minister) for four years - a few decades ago.
The photos above were taken by University of the South Pacific students on a study tour. Peceli said he can't send his photos until he gets to Suva later in the week! I am jealous of his trip - I would love to do paintings up the Sigatoka Valley. Well, perhaps another time.
